Don’t Make Me Think!: A Common Sense Approach to Web Usability


book

Just finsihed reading this book and its does exactly what it says on the tin “A Common Sense Approach”, but as most people are aware sometimes common sense is not as common as what we think.

It basically covers the obvious stuff of designing interaction for websites and tries to drill home the point that users should not have to think about preforming simple tasks on a site. This may seem like an obvious thing but how often have you been on a site and playing pin the tail on the donkey when you just want to find the contact button or shipping details.

Its is defiantly worth a read for anyone starting into the world of web development and for those of us who just a need a reminder that the annoying signage or directional issue we encounter day to day we are sometimes responsible for as web developers.
